The goal of this group is to foster communication between the developers of Drupal's social networking modules, discuss roadmaps, and collect community input.

Drupal Expert | Goyava!

Employment type: 


My name is Douno. I just got hold of the drupal script and I am trying to create a social networking site exactly like hi5 but for my country. The country is Guinea (so the template of the site needs to have the colors of the guinean flag) and the default language of the site is french.
The site needs to have exactly all the functionality of HI5.
I am ready to start this project in a week time and I really would like it if the site can be done in a timeframe of 2 weeks.

Note: if you do not speak French it's OK, as I can help with the translation.

Thanx, Sid Douno

Poker Social Networking website using drupal

We'd like to let you know about our web site: - It
is a social network of poker players. The name "K9Poker" is inspired by
the famous "Dogs Playing Poker" painting by Calvin Coolidge. We think
poker is such a social game that a networking web site dedicated to it is
a perfect fit. On K9Poker, a player can create a personalized poker
profile, establish a network of poker friends, and search for poker home
games and tournaments in their area. We'd appreciate if you take a look at and review our web site.

buddylist 2.x development

I'm glad to announce development of a buddylist 2.x module. Our team needs buddylist's functionality for a project, but decided that buddylist's (1.x) quality is too bad for use in our project and that the effort to fix it wouldn't be worth the trouble. So we'll build buddylist 2.x..

Buddylist 2.x design decisions:

  • use views (for now with usernode..) for all buddy listing, so they are
    extensible and customizable
  • use workflow-ng for all notifications, which provides e-mail notifications - or whatever you want (just write the appropriate action..)
  • to simplify only the buddylist modus with "Confirmed buddies" will be
    supported - no one-way buddy connections
  • only implement the basics in the module, other things should be built as add-ons.
    So there will be no buddy-group functionality, or tracker integration (for
    this views can be used nevertheless).
  • we have also planned to develop an extension, which shows the shortest
    buddy connection to other people later
  • Probably there will be no need for changing the db-scheme. So
    upgrading would be just a matter of replacing the module.

So in short the pros/cons of this design will be:
+ small, stable, performant module
+ good code reusing
- a lot of dependencies (views, usernode, worfklow-ng for notifications)

development will be done by nodestroy

an experimental platform

You might be interested in an experimental platform based on Drupal 5.1 that we are making for small linguistic entities. Basically it delivers the capability of speaking, along with reading, by introducing an added MP3 vocal file to all nodes and comments.

The english version is at a first running example in the piemontese language is at

We look for volunteer developers and translators to localize the platform into other languages, so feel free to add requests to join the alpha stage. Bear in mind that alpha really means alpha...

Planning to Build a Social Networking, Educational, and E-commerce site

We are planning to build site that includes Social Networking, Educational Media, and an Online Store.

I see that is a Drupal site that does social networking. Is this the premier Drupal site doing social networking right now? Does anyone know how much customization is required beyond plugging in available modules is required to create something like GoingOn? Are there other Drupal sites as developed or more developed in social networking than GoingOn?

I would appreciate any information or thoughts on this.

I am looking for Drupal developers interested in producing an identity game based in an online social networking system. I can provide for interested parties a pitch for a televised version that has been making its showbiz rounds about a week now. However, before you get the wrong idea about my intentions, let me assure you that the online game is not solely a vehicle for attracting the attention of producers and television audiences. I came to this idea while trying to conceive of the basis for an open source social networking platform.
